Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society Member Meeting and Summer Speaker Series 2020
Due to COVID-19 restrictions we may not be able to see friends at the Rocky River Nature Center for monthly speaker presentations -- but we are convening virtually!
The June Member Meeting [00:00 - 20:00] included news and updates and two special invitations: the first to Kaoru Tsubone, WCAS Director-at-Large and Field Trip Co-Coordinator, designated as 'WCAS Ambassador to Japan' and the second to David Lindo, designated as 'WCAS Global Ambassador'. Both roles were accepted and each is intended to promote the Audubon mission and act as a bridge between local and global birding communities. Look for more information about each in the coming weeks. Congratulations Karou and David!
